WCU Foundation Surpasses
Annual Fundraising Goal!
The WCU Foundation is excited to report that it closed the 2015-16 fiscal year with record fundraising totals. The Foundation raised $5,668,552 in cash gifts as well as secured an additional $1,469,471 in cash pledge commitments and $5,200,650 in future planned gift commitments. The 2015-16 cash total exceeded our State System Performance Funding goal of $4.75 million by nearly 20 percent. These unprecedented fundraising results included cash and in-kind donations including equipment and real estate. The planned gift commitments were secured through bequest intentions, charitable gift annuities and gifts of life insurance.
The cash raised is benefiting the entire campus supporting annual operating needs ($2,109,170), endowments ($1,103,911), capital improvements and construction ($1,025,864), and new program development, research, and outreach efforts ($1,429,607). More than 9,200 donors contributed to this record breaking year with 48 percent of them being alumni. Current and retired faculty and staff account for 5 percent of the donors to WCU and last year contributed nearly $210,000.
